Scared

Wow!! I just got home from work a little while ago...it was raining so hard that I could barely see and all the roads are just a mess. I had to take a detour...such a round about way to get home let me tell you...took me about an hour compared to what takes me about 25 mins. normally. The creek behind our house is moving really really fast and it is smaking into the bridge that goes over it. It sure is making some really loud sounds! A tree crashed into it a while ago. So far the power is on...obviously...but who knows for how long! I dont know if Jason will be able to get home from work...he still has a half an hour to go. I called him and ended up crying on the phone because this creek really has me freaked out! It is so strange...I keep getting the flash light and shining it out the back door to see where it is...not like is going to go down or anything...I guess I just keep checking to make sure it is not at the back door. I just keep rambling on and on because I know I will go check it again soon and then just walk all over the house about 50 times...that is not going to help anything! But...I will have some good flood pictures tomorrow...like that is supposed to make me feel any better! I know I feel much better once Jason gets home from work! I need to calm down...just breath deep...nice clensing breths...nope not working...lol

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that)American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again.A close up!HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next.Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done. 
I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch.
Enjoy your week!
Happy Stitching!!

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to World War II History Network and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at Casualty Cards Database.
Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division
